When I read this book, or rather, the bulk of it, I was under the impression that I did not care for Thoreau's writing. I readthis exception to my rule simply b/c of my interest in political science. It is brilliantly written, and more importantly, the theme rings truer today than ever. Thoreau had the disadvantage, however, of living in a time too near the revolution to make a change. Even if you disagree with his ideology and practice (or ex-practice I should say, as he is quite deceased) this book should be read to strengthen your grounds. It is a beautiful piece of literature and a witty rebellion from government.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
